Market Day 9/11

Join the Wakefield Farmers Market, Saturday, September 11, from 9am to 1pm, with everything you’ll need to fill your fridge with lots of local deliciousness. The market will be full of freshly picked fruits, veggies, locally raised meats, out of this world fish, cheese, and specialty foods. This week we welcome fresh lobster and crab, plus a new twist on adult beverages. Fresh and local is where it’s at.

It looks like it will be a beautiful, late summer day and we plan on taking advantage of that, as we feature a number of local non-profit groups.

The Boys & Girl Scouts will be here! There’s always something fun on tap at their tent.

Wakefield Educational Foundation will be here with their 2021/2022 school year calendars.

Welcome my fellow artists from the Arts Collaborative of Wakefield. They will be here sharing information about being part of our next exhibit, SQUARES at the Albion Cultural Exchange in October. Stop by their table and meet a few of the artists, and see how you can be part of this fantastic visual art community.

Finally, we welcome our special guests of honor, the Wakefield Food Pantry. Thanks to their generous donation this year, helping to fund our SNAP match program, we can continue to help veterans, the elderly and young families in our community, who are currently experiencing food insecurities.

As always, have hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, and jump ropes on hand for kids of all ages. Thanks to the Wakefield Co-operative Bank for sponsoring our kids events this year.

The Magic of Yarrow and his awesome balloon sculpture.

Stop by the Market Manager tent, show you support for the market, and place your order for your very own Wakefield Farmers Market tee! A $25 donation gets you one of our awesome new 100% cotton tees that you can wear proudly, and fashionably too.
